On 13 March 2024, the Holberg Prize announced its 2024 laureate: Achille Mbembe, Professor at the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research, at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.

The Prize is awarded by the University of Bergen on behalf of the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research "to a scholar who has made outstanding contributions to research in the humanities, social science, law or theology, either in one of these fields or through interdisciplinary work."

MF CASR was pleased to host Professor Mbembe in 2022 when he delivered the Annual Lecture "Restitution, Reparation and the Capacity for Truth," and celebrates his ongoing achievements.

Congratulations Professor Mbembe!
